Sunday marked in Peoples Park

People’s park in Dun Laoghaire getting ready for the Sunday marked

When I was in Ireland this time, I did not do very many touristy things. But one of the things I really wanted to go to was the Sunday Marked in Peoples park in Dun Laoghaire. If you are ever in Dublin and want a nice break from the city I can recommend Dun Laoghaire and especially on a Sunday when there is a marked in the people’s park.

There is many things to taste and this time around I was very lucky with the weather. Last time I was there I was just after a big breakfast, so this time I went on an empty tummy, but as I had a lunch with many family members after I had to choose my treats very carefully.

Would not be an Irish marked without something Guinness, here bread and cake 

There was many people out, but as the park is large it did not feel too crowded. So I was able to walk around a few times to have a proper look at all the stalls I wanted a look at. The People’s Park has been open to the public since 1890 and it has great examples of Victorian architecture with the Gate Lodge and the Tea Rooms, a bandstand featuring the original gaslight standards and a playground.

All sorts off different things being sold and lovely sunshine
I had some of this wonderful warm apple and whiskey drink

Even if it was a sunny day the temperature was not very high and a warming apple and whiskey drink was lovely to drink while walking around. One was enough to keep warm for the whole time I stayed, I suspect that might have something to do with the whiskey.

Even the doughnuts were ready for Halloween
